May 29, 2009 5:29am CST
Hi everyone. A day or two before one of my junior came to me and asked... "what is your pet name? and you have the name of the person you love the most, that you won't lie." I told her me pet name. Then after sitting silently for a while, (not looking towards me) she asked... What do you find beautiful in life? I had so many things to say, so many things that I could have said...but nothing came out of my mouth...don't know why. What would you say if you are to answer it?

I look into my child's eyes and there you have it. That is what I find beautiful in life, not just because she is beautiful to look at but because when I look at her I can see my purpose in life. The day she was born I thought to myself, "If I don't achieve anything else in my life, it doesn't matter, this is enough..." When I became a mother I found a love that is unique to all others.

Hi. That was so great to hear. I don't know whether I am a right person to suggest you anything on parenting or not, as I am not a parent by now, but there is something that I would like to say here... Please do maintain an unconditional love for your children all through your and their lives and not bound your closeness by the amount of success they have in their life. Thanks for your response and time.

The thing that I find most beautiful in my life is my children (even though they can sometimes put it to the test! lol) and my 3 granddaughters.

i would say that wat i find beautiful in life is having freedom, because it lets you do what you want and the world would be a lot worse without it. Just imagine you have to do what someone tells you and not what you want to do.

Well, this is a question that i couldn't resist to answer . Even if i'm not a rich person but i have many things and people around me who i value as an important part of my life. My family of course are one of those things that i find beautiful in my life because if not because of my parents, brothers and sisters, then i wouldn't be a successful person to finish a degree that i wanted to achieve. Before i thought that , most of the nice things given to me by God are just my family and i'm also greatful for those who are around sometimes when i need help. But now, what i really find the most beautiful thing that i ever have is to have a great family and a very ideal and loving husband. Actually , before i didn't have enough inspiration in my life to live longer, sometimes negative things came into my mind , but not anymore. Since i got married to my husband , i could feel the difference of having him because from him i feel so blessed, full of love, inspired to live another day and encouragement for us to have a better life. I just don't know but the feeling is just overwhelming because he love me in a way that nobody else does or nobody else tried. I believe he is always honest with me and i'm always his first priority. That's why with the kind of affection that he have shown , how could i not feel the same. I think if somebody else is in my part, they still would feel the same and say that it's the one of the most beautiful things that has happened in life.But i think there are still some other things out there which i should feel happy about but i can't just think it from now.

Okay... That is pretty good and I think if you are not able to recall other things for the moment, the things you have, will do. and yes, having a partner who loves is really important and beautiful. Nice to have your views on this one. Thanks for your response.

If I am sitting in front of my gf, then the first things which will come out of my mouth will be "You" of course. but then again, it wasn't me who was asked this question from, it was you and you must have had some plan in your mind which didn't come to any conclusion at all! LOL

That I think was the reason I kept quite. I had something in my mind and I thought about it. Th question to me is to be answered in no time, spontaneously and not after thinking or planing about it. Thanks for your response.

i find children and babies beautiful because they are innocent and love without reservation and experience pure joy. somehow life taints all of that eventually but i love being around children and most especially my own son. my son is the most beautiful thing in my life without question. he loves me unconditionally and he is kind and caring. we have a strong and loving relationship.

I find everything about life to be absolutely perfect. Being able to experience the wonderful world and having an opportunity to live with it is a tremendous gift i have had received.There are times that we felt we were falling but its just all part of it. No pain no gain. Just wholeheartedly accept and embrace everything that is happening on your life, if you fall, learn to bounce back. We only have one life to live, so live to the fullest!

beautiful thing in life is PEACE which i not get it due to so much stress through this way or other way. I know i am living in stress, which is not good for health but its not my option so i live it with branded smile so that others not know about what going on inside but i like the moment when i got the peace for a while. thanks for your discussion and keep smiling, :) Swatig

Hi. I used to believe that smile is one of the most beautiful thing in this world but the 'branded' smile has made me think otherwise. Wish you can dispose it off really soon and live with a real one. Thanks for your response.

For me the beautiful thing in life is so many and usually it is free. What is beauty to me is things that need not be forced and also simple things such as innocence, sincerity. A sincere smile and laughter is beautiful for me. I dont need tons of money to appreciate beauty. Nature is beautiful to me.

Hello coolmailraj. There are so many things that we can find beautiful in our life. To begin with, life itself is beautiful or in another word, to live is a beautiful thing. To work is beautiful because it makes us fulfill our aim in life. To come back home safe and sound is beautiful as we can enjoy more of our life doing things we like to do at home. So long as we treat ourselves well, there is nothing that we cannot find beautiful. I love life for its being beautiful.

Well there are many beautiful things in our life. We just have to find them Some of them are mentioned here 1 - A loving family 2 - A good set of friends 3 - A true love (Not applicable for me) 4 - A good job (Not applicable for me) 5 - Some beautiful places to experience true nature. 6 - Technology that has helped us many ways to make our life better. I think I have mentioned some weird things but still I think these things are beautiful in the life of every person.

Honest thoughts. But why two of those things are not applicable to you? Job may be a thing that can be excluded but why love?

Because I have not yet experience something good from those two things. i.e. Not yet satisfied with my previous job and current unemployed Secondly never experienced love

When you say 'never experienced love' I think you mean, you have never been in a relationship. Because your parents, siblings, relatives and friends must be loving you for sure.

I think that the people who can find beauty in even the smallest things are the happiest. We can find beauty in the things we do, learn or see. I try to find beauty in everything around me, even if it is very small.

Hi dear. Nice to listen from you after so long. How are you and where have you been? About the response... The person who 'finds' beauty is unfortunate to me. It is something to be felt and not found. Thanks for your response and time.

Hi! It's spring here so I've been spending more time outside enjoying the beautiful weather, and less time inside on the computer. I've been wondering how you were doing, so I'm glad you posted this discussion. How have you been and are you looking forward to leaving, or are you starting to like it where you are? I so much enjoyed your Holil pictures. Will you be posting more? Some one who 'finds' beauty should not be unfortunate to you. We all have to find the things that are beautiful in life in order to feel them, right? When we are first born we only have an awareness of ourselves. Everything else must be found, discovered or experienced to be able to feel the beauty. Whether it's our parents, family and friends, or thengs we see, sounds we hear or something we taste or touch. Finding to me is simply the process of becoming aware of something beautiful so that you can then feel it. I think we're really saying the same thing, since your question is 'what do you find beautiful in life', not 'what do you feel is beautiful in life'.

life is beautiful because we are able to do whatever we want to do, we can see things which are very rare, we have kids, we have problems to face in our daily lives. we laugh for the reasons that we feel happy and joy. we cried because we were hurt and disappointed maybe. thats the spirit of the gift of life itself. God created all the things which are very impossible to make, he gives us all the blessings, of course thats the reward of all the hardworks we do in our life as well. there's a saying " do your part and ill do my part" hope you got what i mean for that. LOL

Things I find beautiful in life are, waking up to a new day, hearing the birds sing, children playing..taking walks outside, the smell of freshly hown grass and the leaves of trees after the rain, breathing in fresh air, the love of my friends and family, the flowers blooming in the gardens, watching the sunset then the stars and moon come out, those are a few things that are beautiful to me...LoLo

Life itself is so beautiful. But in my life, I admire the relations that I've got. God has given me very nice parents, great friends and loving relations. This is the happiest part of my life. Even if we have a lot of dark spots in our life, ture love will help us overcome all those problems and move up in life! So, true love is the most beautiful thing in life!

Hi. nice thoughts. By the way, have you ever felt a difference between love and true love? I can't understand why people use these two terms!
• India

Hmmmmm I don't find any difference between love and true love. You can't love a person falsely. True love is the only love. But it's so usual to use this term!

Hi. I expected that kind of response from someone...I thought that among all these people here on mylot, someone will be having a baby like thinking after reading the discussion and it will be really nice to read the response of that person. Your response had the impression of the same thought process. By he way, the list you have given will do and don't put pressure on your mind to recall the other things as well. Thanks for your response and time.
